Andrea, if it's any consolation, I've heard from many people that internet sales for almost anything are slow during the summer. I know that last year my Google Adsense earnings decreased during the summer. My June was okay, but fully expect July and August to decline. I'm not going to let it bother me. I hope. :)

If I weren't expecting a baby in 3 months, I wouldn't be worried. It's just that I'd hoped this would provide some recurring revenue. However, I'm not going to get too worked up over one month. I'll have to see how the summer goes. I'd just prefer not to have to wind my earnings down to peanuts, like I had to with my first child. I know I can build things up again, but it would be nice if the cash register kept ringing...even slowly!

Well, things certainly perked up this month. I'm not so far off from what I was making a few months ago. Given that it's summer, I'm pretty happy with this. I don't think I'll be hitting the 50% of current income target, but that's okay. If things stay steady, I won't be disappointed with the showing.

Woo hoo! I've met my goal. I suspect November was a blip, but, nevertheless, it's the month that saw me through my goal!

I haven't updated this thread in a long time...but I wanted to say that my "passive" income streams have really grown. I'm now earning more from these than from any other aspect of my business.
